Rajab 1440 Week 3

Qur’an, Sura Al Fath, Chapter 48

28. He it is Who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the din [way of life] of Haqq [Truth], that He may support its manifestation and make it known over all dins. And Allah is enough as a Shahid [Witness].

29. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are tough against the unbelievers but merciful among themselves. You (Muhammad) see them bowing and making sajda [prostration], and seeking bounty from Allah, and also His acceptance (and happiness with them). You can see their marks on their faces from the traces of sajda. Such is their description in the Torah and their description in the Injil [Gospel]. It is like a sown seed that sends forth its shoot, and strengthens it, so that it thickens and stands firm upon its stalk, astonishing the planters, so that He may enrage the unbelievers by them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do good deeds absolution and a tremendous reward.
